ALYCE, INC. Senior DevOps Engineer (Location Flexible) in Boston, Massachusetts
Senior DevOps Job Description
Hi — we’re Alyce! Founded in 2015 with a tiny team sharing space with a bike repair shop, we’ve grown up in more ways than one. You can now find us across the globe with roots in Boston.
Every year $242B is spent on corporate gifts, swag and direct mail. It’s the most relational channel and we’re on a mission to make it personal, relevant and a simply magical experience. No more squishy balls, cheap water bottles, and other things that end up in the trash. Our personal gifting platform flips the script by putting the gift recipient in control — creating relevant, thoughtful moments that delight. This is how modern businesses grow sustainably at scale.
We value our people above everything else. While we all have our own passions, personalities, objectives, and goals, we are one team that is building something great together. Our differences make us collectively better. We strive to build a supportive and inclusive environment where our team members are recognized and valued for who they are during working hours (9-to-5) and outside of them (#5to9™).
And we’re proud and honored to be recognized as Comparably’s Best Company for Women, Best Company Culture and Best Places to Work in Boston, as well as Bostinno’s 50 on Fire, LinkedIn’s Top 50 Start-Ups of 2020 and Forbes 2021 Best Start-Up Employer.
